A 3 year contract? I thought the jump from 18 months to 2 years was bad enough. I haven't done the sums but wouldn't it be better, and cheaper, to buy the phone outright (using a credit card on 0% for 'X' months, then swapping at the end of the 0% for another one - or cash back) and have a SIM only plan?
3 years.....you don't get that for murder nowadays!

Sooooooooooo... Murder someone and take their iPhone X. Got it!

Why has this deal gone cold?

iPhone X - £1000 rrp
40GB Data - equates to £18.22pm!

Does it actually matter that your locked in for 3 years? It's not as if they are giving you a bad deal with the allowances. And the iPhone X will have no problem lasting for 4 years, let alone 3 years (unless you drop it of course!)

If you're in the market for an iPhone X...this contract is a good buy. Heat added!

If you really want the phone just buy it outright or get it on a two year contract, if you can’t afford the 2-year price payments over the 3 then you likely have bigger problems.

Saying the phone will definitely last 3-4 years isn’t a valid argument - anyone who wants an X because it’s the latest is hardly going to tolerate a 3-4 year old phone at the end of it are they? If it’s still working without damage that is.

It's because it's very overpriced, people need to stop buying them so that they reduce the price, sadly sheep are willing to mortgage a mobile these days.

X pensive!

Ridiculous hyperbole aside, it is a very expensive phone but not that far off the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, which is widely considered the one of the best Android has to offer. If you genuinely appreciate the features the phone offers and want the best that iOS has to offer then there's not a lot of choice. I bought mine outright on pre-order and don't regret it. I'll use and enjoy it each day - I haven't sacrificed anything to buy one.

I still disagree with 3-year contracts however Virgin paints it, even if it's a Freestyle contract where the phone is financed and the airtime is able to be cancelled - it's like O2 Refresh but worse and I don't trust the performance of MVNOs, when the networks get congested at peak times, they are the first to suffer - go direct with EE, Vodafone or O2 for the best network service IMO.

There are many alternatives, The Note 8 is still considerably cheaper in comparison but still very overpriced, It's a shame Samsung jumped on the overprice bandwagon but it's supply and demand. While people are willing to part with such ridiculous amounts of money then they'll continue to pull your pants down. The only thing revolutionary nowadays is the price!.

Be aware that Virgin are actually charging something like £1255 for the handset, so the 0% finance offer isn’t as good as it seems on face value

Actually someone raised one of the best points I've ever seen or read in another thread elsewhere, I tried to emphasise it. If you want to use iOS (explicitly therefore, Apple only) then the iPhone X is pretty much the only choice. For Android, there is a huge choice and therefore competition is higher too - I use both as I've frequently said before as I can't get everything I want from a phone from one or the other alone.

Yes, you can vote with your feet but people aren't just going to boycott a phone or product because of the price, most people will just accept the high price and get on with it. Doesn't mean I like it either but sometimes that's the best option. But one thing I'm not going to do is pretend I didn't pay full price by masking it with a ridiculous 36-month contract.
